India carried out air strikes inside Pakistan early Tuesday and targeted terror camps, official sources said. IAF also means India`s Amazing Fighters. Jai Hind — Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) February 26, 2019 × Several fighter jets of the Indian Air Force successfully destroyed camps belonging to Pakistan-based terror outfits in Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, they said. The IAF strike was carried out by a group of Mirage 2000 fighters at around 3.30 am. The strike in Balakot was significant as the location was beyond Pakistan-administered Kashmir, indicating it was not merely an LoC violation but a punitive action inside Pakistani territory. It follows a suicide bombing attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in Pulwama on February 14 that killed 40 troopers.
